Comfort Food: Chicken pie


{the beauty shot from the cookbook}

This comfort food dish couldn’t be easier. Unfortunately I was the only one in my family who liked it so I’ll probably just make it for my parents.

It’s kind of like chicken pot pie without the vegetables, or a creamy chicken and biscuits. Surprisingly flavorful for how few ingredients it calls for. You just make a stew out of chicken stock, a can of cream of chicken soup (the building block of so many comfort food dishes), and shredded chicken and pour that in a casserole dish. A simple batter made with buttermilk, melted butter and self-rising flour gets poured right over top, and the whole thing bakes in the oven for about 40 or so minutes. Pretty nifty! The biscuit-like topper puffs up in the oven. So good.

One thought on “Comfort Food: Chicken pie

  1. The one in the cookbook was probably made of plastic. I went to a food shoot long ago and was stunned at how good the food looked and how much of it was not real. Yours looks just fine, and I’ll bet it tastes a lot better than that photogenic dish in the book.
